of the american am basses door and three others after protesters stormed the embassy in benghazi. not clear exactly how the ambassador died, although officials believe it is likely his killers were an organized group who planned the attack. protesters are out again in egy egypt. the president chose his words carefully. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally of the united states? >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they are a new government that is trying to find its way. they were democratically elected. i think that we will have to see how they respond to this incident, how they respond to, for example, maintaining the peace treaty with israel. >> i want to bring in nick kristof and look at the cover this week. the agents of outrage. we'll talk about that, as well. couldn't be happier to have the two of you and your expertise in this area. i want to start with what happened in libya and give us your perspective. these assailants were heavily armed. it they seemed to be organized. does it seem to you perhaps to have b
curry, it lacks to be a branch of al qaeda. that's something we heard after the benghazi attack happened. where do you think we are now in terms ofterrorism. obviously as the president said, the traditional al eda ae i s t h bee decimated. top leaders including osama bin laden are gone but where are we? >> i think again that's a statement. the ail die is the al qaeda. ere are mutanrm e of wannabes and look-alikes. i think active terrorism in spite of the facthat the president rightly has given some credit for elited osamain land, inor and somewhat naive to say merely because you cut the head of the organization, now you have other groups affiliated, oftentimes rhetorically affiliated but others given gnc f ot and the arabian peninsula. it ooh's dominant force in the region in cahoots from time to time with the iranian influence as well. we're ing be dealing with activism terrori, look-akes and wannabes. >> i'm going to ask you to play chameleon again. this is a question people are thinking about. if you were a moderator at one of these debates,hat do you u d w t ask both of the candidat
the deadly attack in benghazi as terrorism, although the president stopped short of that yesterday. >> what we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they could also directly harm u.s. interests. >> among others, senator john mccain has been very critical of the u.s. investigation into this attack. >> i'm stunned that they thought it was some kind of spontaneous demonstration. it shows the level of their, the abysmal level of their knowledge about fine nigite levels of tert attacks. >> i'm joined by an nbc news terrorist investigators. wham you're seeing and hearing, was this a terror attack? >> look, it's terrorism whether it's plans or spontaneous. you go into a foreign embassy and kill a u.s. ambassador, that's terrorism. that's what you see coming out of the obama administration. they're a lot more cautious saying this was a planned event and the i think politicians across the spectrum including senator mccain need to be very careful about that. there hasn't really been a lot of public evidence
in benghazi that killed ambassador chris stooerevens and three oth measures. members from both parties want more information. >> the issue goes beyond the day-to-day political infighting and you have members of both parties asking for more details in part because of the gravity of the situation and because there's an evolving eleven the information that's becoming public. john kerry, who heads the senate foreign relations committee, has put together a letter he sent to the state department with some members of the republican party as well asking for more information. now, some of what we are seeing, some of that pressure does have a more partisan edge where you have critics in the republican party who have put letters forward to secretary clinton, to the u.n. ambassador, susan rice specifically talking about what they believe were misstatements by the administration or a lack of being, i guess, savvy enough to suspect a terrorist attack, which some republican members like john mccain, like kelly ayotte have been saying was more likely than a spontaneous mob reaction. so there is a bit of th
